Try the More Reliable, Less Expensive Way
to Gather Useful Market Feedback
3 reasons to ditch your current method (if you even have one)

Trusting your gut is a risky proposition 😰

Sometimes, you just don’t know which product photos to use or what to title your product. So you go with your gut — but that can backfire badly.

Feedback from family & friends is often biased 🙅

Getting feedback from friends and family on different book covers? They're dangerously likely to tell you what you want to hear — and are they even part of your target market?

Buying ads is expensive & time-consuming💰

Creating Google Ads or Facebook Ads for all your different book covers to see which one has the highest click-through rate (CTR) can work… but it’s a hassle to set up correctly. Not to mention expensive.

PickFu Is Faster, Easier, & More Actionable
than Buying Ads

PickFu gets you the same useful, quantitative, and unbiased results as buying expensive ads. The difference is that PickFu polls gather those results much faster, without any of the hassle of confusing ads dashboards or muddled analytics.

As a bonus, PickFu responses include open-ended, written feedback you can use to further iterate on your book covers. Use your qualitative feedback to clarify what users find confusing, address your product's specific benefits, and even as "swipe copy" to improve your product listings.

Your PickFu poll results give you the confidence and the data you need to optimize your book cover appeal.

3 Simple Steps to Useful Market Feedback




Mike Curtis
Author of Understand Women: Win the Heart of One

I selected PickFu because of the quality of the responses and the speed at which I received polling results. I simply don't have that patience or the luxury of waiting for days to receive polling data. I did multiple polls to help me select a new book cover and received the results of each poll in less than 15 minutes. Fantastic cost effective service and excellent support.

John Dreese
Author of RED HOPE

To be honest, I was *stunned* at the results of that poll. I really liked the cover image with the new picture, but the vast majority of people liked the original all-red one. Since the purpose of a cover is to grab eyeballs and interest shoppers to click, it really is a popularity contest. The majority ruled.

Andre Hiotis

I wanted to know which book cover design would entice a potential reader to buy my book. With PickFu, the results were timely, but more importantly, the comments I received were so thoughtful. Everyone's response provided additional insight.

Steve Scott
Authority Self-Publishing, Habit Stacking is my go-to tool whenever I want direct and honest feedback for my cover or book title. What I love is I get results within an hour and how the respondents provide a detailed 'reason why' they voted a certain way.


What kind of results do I get?

Each set of results includes the following:

  • Answer tally: Stats on how many people (and what percentage) chose each option.
  • Answer comments: Each respondent explains why she chose what she did. These comments are often remarkably insightful. Many customers say it’s the most useful part of our service.
  • Demographic info: Demographic data about those who answered your poll, including gender, age, race, income, and educational level - displayed on pretty charts and broken down by each answer.
What kind of content can I test? Text? Images? Video?

You can test text, images or even video. Just make sure all your options are the same type of content. Read our about testing different types of content in our help center.

Who answers my polls?
We have a broad set of US-based respondents that are paid to answer your poll questions. We use a variety of safeguards to ensure that the respondents who participate in your polls answer them honestly and seriously. There is additional information in our help topic.
Do the respondents see my results?
No. Respondents do not see the final poll results. Respondents see a different view of the poll that includes your question, answer options, and any relevant segmentation survey questions. They do not see others’ answers or any identifying information.
I made a mistake. Can I stop my poll?
We cannot pause or stop and restart a poll once it has begun to receive responses because if a poll question or its options were to be edited mid-way, the results would be unreliable. Please take advantage of the Preview function before publishing your poll. We do not issue refunds for typos and other user errors.
Are the options shown to responders in random order?
Yes, we randomize the order of the options. However, we keep the labeling consistent (i.e., "A" or "B"). This means that while the order of options will change (sometimes Option B will be presented before Option A), Option B will be called Option B in both instances. Here's an example poll to demonstrate.
Why should I pay for a membership?
Paid membership is an excellent option if (1) you poll regularly to improve your business or (2) you're an organization that would benefit from the advanced business-specific features (teams, co-branding, API access, etc) Read more about membership plans here.
Do membership plans include polls?
No, polling costs are separate from plan costs. Your paid membership lowers the price per response for each poll using the PickFu Panel, and removes upgrade charges for premium polling features.
